In need of a dessert for tonight? Have an hour, including cooling time? Then I have a cake for you. Simple, moist, rich in flavor, soft in texture-not to mention you just need to mix it, bake it, cool it, and eat it!
Full time 1 hour (includes cooling time)
Serves 8 (easily multiples)
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup boiling water
1/3 cup coco baking powder
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350' and spray a 9" round or square cake pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients except for boiling water, mixing until well combined.
Add in boiling water and mix to fully incorporate.
Pour batter (which will be slightly thinner than standard cake batter) into pan.
Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center of cake.
Allow to cool in pan 5 minutes.
Flip onto wire rack to cool in refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving.
Dust lightly with powdered sugar or frost if desired, cheers!
